Janice captures the spirit of adventure in the narrative, whilst John captures the mischievous nocturnal activities of this rambunctious little raccoon perfectly with simple, clever and colorful illustrations. This enchanting little book delivers a beautiful story, simply told. As with her other book, Louey the Lazy Elephant, Janice Spina embeds a cautionary tale into the narrative designed to teach children a lesson, whilst entertaining them with the funny antics of this mischievous, but endearing fellow. Children will laugh at what happens to Ricky as he humorously tries to evade the creatures of the night, whilst his mother is looking for him. It's unusual for the narrative to be set against a black background, but in the context of this story, it makes perfect sense, given that all the action takes place at night. It is another aspect of this story that will appeal to children and help them interpret the message and imagine the world in the story. Another great book, by a clever team of Author and Illustrator.
